Luca Forcucci’s research observes the perceptive properties of sound, space and memory. The field of possibilities of the experience is explored as the artwork. In this context, he is interested in perception, subjectivity and consciousness. A great influence is the late American avant- garde composer and musician Pauline Oliveros and her concept of deep listening expanded to all what is humanly possible to listen to. Since 2008, he collaborates with scientists in the field of neuroscience, perception and biology.
Luca achieved a PhD in Sonic Arts from De Montfort University and a MA in Sonic Arts from Queens University of Belfast. He studied electroacoustic music with the Swiss composer Rainer Boesch in Geneva, and was produced, by Al Comet, former member of The Young Gods. Luca has an extensive background in architecture informed by twenty five years of professional practice.
Since 2001, Luca has lived in Lausanne, Geneva, Milan, Belfast, Paris, Shanghai and Berlin with frequent expeditions in Brazil and South Africa. His own artistic research includes and observes then the possibility to live within a constraint of 23 kg lugguage, a hand lugguage and a laptop folder.
